Frsky Receiver Firmware Explanation
BETA65X Frsky receiver is now pre-flashed in EU-LBT firmware or FCC firmware. So you can choose the 2S whoop based on the firmware of your radio controller.
If you are not sure about what firmware you have on your radio controller.
Please check out here on our support page.--27th Septmber 2018
BETA65X Frsky receivers were all pre-flashed in FCC firmware before 27th September.
Thus,if your radio controller uses EU-LBT firmware, you have to flash the firmware of the Frsky receiver to EU-LBT firmware. Otherwise, you can't bind successfully.
For EU-LBT firmware users that has bought Beta65X with FCC firmware for Frsky receiver, you can checkout here to find out how to flash Frsky receiver to EU-LBT firmware.

1. Update About the LED at the rear for Beta65X
The FC board is now upgraded to V1.2. It can support programable LED like WS2812 etc. But there's NO rear LED holder for Beta65X by default.
2. I am interested in connecting an HD camera and DVR, but I don't want to overload the circuit of 5V.
The 5V regulator on the FC board could handle 2A of load. So you could use it for HD camera or DVR board. More details, please check the FC board page.
3. Does this drone have current sensor?
This drone does NOT have a real current sensor. We use the virtual current meter in Betaflight. When properly calibrated, it can be accurate enough to be useful. Here is the pre-calibrated value out of the box.
set current_meter = VIRTUAL
set ibatv_scale = 90
set ibatv_offset = 29
4. How to connect the receiver to the 2S brushless FC?
Please don't forget to plug the battery when you try to connect the connector to the 2S brushless FC. Find out more details in our support page.
